Jacques Garcia’s philosophy is “I am, before everything, a creator of atmospheres.” and that concept is so well reflected on his projects, such as Wolfgang Puck’s Cut restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, NoMad hotels in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, a rehabilitation of Monte Carlo’s Hôtel Métropole. The designer’s key influences are Louis Le Vau, Eugène-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, Frank Gehry. Talking about favorite places of Jacques Garcia, his favorite Hotel is La Mamounia in Marrakech, which was decorated by himself.
The designer is passionate by the gardens of Château du Champ de Bataille in Sainte-Opportune-du-Bosc, France and by the Louvre in Paris, which is Jacques Garcia’s favorite museum. His favorite restaurant is Le Gabriel (also designed by himself) at La Réserve hotel in Paris.
The Next Big Thing for Jacques Garcia is “A return to knowledge.”
